Tuesday’s conditions were close to perfect.  Clark Lake’s ice cover was smooth and very slippery.  A coating of previous precipitation had coated the surface, and beckoned anyone with an ice boat.  Phil Schindler took up the alluring invitation today.


Conditions were “close to perfect” because there was also a yawning open area near Eagle Point, as you can see in the photo.  Get too close, and it’s disaster.  Migrating geese have been using the lake for overnight stays, and some of them were gathered around that open spot today.
